Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, educational institutions have endured significant strain, with educators, principals, and students exhibiting remarkable resilience amidst the ongoing challenges of unpredictable schooling, disrupted routines, and feelings of isolation. This extraordinary experience has caused both resilience and trauma among those involved. Educators, in particular, face heightened pressures as they strive to establish a sense of normalcy for their students while also managing their personal lives and familial responsibilities.
LIFE aims to make a positive impact on the students whom educators and principals engage with, thereby influencing the overall school culture and fostering an improved environment for both work and learning. For the first time in Europe, the LIFE project brings the “Life Worth Living” approach that started from YALE University to school educators. Local trainers (facilitators) will be trained in the “Life Worth Living” approach to facilitate in-person retreats in each partner country and support the development of learning modules, virtual workshops, and train-the-trainers manual.
